AirForceHops (6690) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2011
22 oz bottle, purchased @ Smileys, Dover, NH. Used shaker glass. Amber color. Light retention. Nose of Belgian yeast and caramel malt. The relationship between the yeast and the malt mingles real well. Taste balances nice between sweet and hoppy. Bread and some Earthy hop notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I didnt know what to expect from this one, decent. Some good drinkability.

ben4321 (6067) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 4/27/12, Batch 1, Bottled Jan 2012

Aroma: The nose has some sweet malts, caramel, bread, Belgian yeast, earth, and hints of fruit
Appearance: It pours a murky looking orange-brown color with a beige head, and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste mostly sweet, with similar components to the nose, and a latter earthy spice feel
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a soft carbonation, some stickiness, and a fairly lengthy finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent one. It wasnt exactly an extremely Belgian offering, but there were some clearly Belgian components. Thus far, this was my favorite thing Ive tried from White Birch (but that isnt a huge compliment).

JK (5971) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle i purchased on clearance at least. Nothing particularly "farmhouse" about this. Very light all around, minimal hops and light malt flavor that lacks any intensity and comes though as very light on the palate without much flavor.

Ernesto987 (5832) - Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2011

From a 2013 bottle. Pours murky opaque copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like toasted malt, caramel, some raisin and grapefruit, yeast, light dry spice. Smells like roasted malt, yeast, light raisin, dry toast, and light dry spice.
